It was a message of hope from one champion to another.
Five time Olympic hockey champion Hayley Wickenheiser sent a video message to Saskatchewan’s Champion Child as she goes through a second round of cancer treatments.
Nine year old Payton Sernick of Estevan was first diagnosed with cancer when she was six, and among other treatments, endured almost a year of chemotherapy.
Payton’s cancer returned late last year and she is now in Edmonton receiving 6 months of chemotherapy followed by a bone marrow transplant.
Wickenheiser reached out by video to send some healing wishes her way.
President and CEO of the Hospital foundation, Brynn Boback-Lane, says Hayley’s heart reached out and gave hope to a little girl in hospital.
